Would anybody be able to tell me how the Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid will fair in a 29 gallon tank with the following fish. Not all at once just each by itself. I am trying to find some good tank mates for my fish.

Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid with Angelfish(1-2)

Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid with Convict Cichlid(1)

Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid with German Blue Ram(1)

or if you could list some fish that would go well with the Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid.

I really would like to get one or two of these guys.
Also, if you could tell me whether or not to keep them in numbers or by themselves?
I am not looking to breed them so leave that out of the decision criteria.

Sorry for all the questions.

Def no convicts in the tank. Convicts will kill the cacatuoides. Why not make the cacatuoides the centerpiece fish? Then add several cories as bottom feeders, a large school of pencilfish as middle feeders, and maybe a gourami or somethin.
